      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

putter question?

Recommended Posts

Not that my putter is bad, I basically two putt (averaged 38 putts for 18 in Hawaii) but my mallet style was a knock off in the first place, mallet style, and I was at Richard's Sporting goods today. My current putter has a plumbers bend in the hozle (I think that is what it is called) and I tried a couple different putters that the shaft was centered on the middle of the putter head. Does that give you an advantage? I tried a couple I liked but I don't want to spend the coin if there is a reason for that style of putter head. I was going to swing a few different irons but i was out of time and I think I will get a club fitting before I look seriously at new irons. Thanks for any expertise.

My current putter face is getting banged up in the bag, I will get a cover for it if I can find a cheapo one.

I also looked at push carts, a couple of guys I played with HI had them and they were pretty slick. One I really liked was the clicgear 2.0......I saw one at the store and told the wifey I would like one for fathers day......anyone else use a push cart? I like to walk but after 15 holes in the sun, I get worn down. The carts aren't cheap but in 10 rounds of cart rental it would be paid for

With putters. It is what ever feels good, and looks good to you! That is why they make so many different styles. And ! Price doesn't always mean it is a better putter. Try as many different ones as you can. If the one you really like is an exspensive one, ask if they have a used one. I play a Scotty Cameron new port . I love it, but didn't have the $280 for a new one. Bought mine used for $100 couple of years ago. Also check out [YouNeedAuthorization] once you have decided on the one you want. Many times you can save yourself some money.

Delmuts hit it right on the nose. The most important thing is how it feels to you. You have to be comfortable with it. Second of all if it looks good to you and the price is right take it. I have an Odyssey 2 ball and only paid $110 for it on Austads online store. So just search around and see whats out there that you like.

With putting, hands down the most important thing is CONFIDENCE and feel. A few years ago I had no confidence and did something as simple as putting a new grip on my putter. I put one of those oversized grips on. It felt SOOOO much better in my hand. My putting improved a ton. If there is anything that can improve your confidence do it. There is nothing worse than standing over an 8 footer and knowing you are going to miss it.

I went to one of the big golf stores in town,I am a lefty, not much for choices compared to a righty, 8-10- putters vrs, 50. But you are right every one felt different, too bad the one that felt right was also the most expensive one. lol

I got a clicgear 2.0 push cart last spring and love it. It's very solid and well built. Folded down it's compact and it's quick to set up. It comes with a short video to show you how. Because it's a three wheeler none of the cart frame sits on the ground and it will take off on hills so you must remember to set the brake.

For gloves and putters I buy from an online outlet called "MG Golf". The putter is a model 415CR. They will size it and grip it to your specs. I bought the standard set up, used it a while and had it shortened and re-griped to my prefrences at a local golf shop for $12. There is a 60 day no questions return policy on it. If you order it customized and return it there is a re-stocking fee. Nice putter, I really like it.

I have a center shafted Odyssey White Hot putter and I love it. But like everyone say's, it's what feels best and what you can keep straight that matters. Narrow it down to 3 or 4 different styles and putt with them until they start to eliminate themselves, then buy the last one in your hands. smile

    • The only thing to use them for, If I had one!  
    • Utube Randy Newberg spring bear hunts. He has a ton of DIY info on spring bear hunting
    • I've never used electric jacks, or hydro. I've heard they are pretty nice, and guys like them. It will be interesting to see how you feel about them after a season or two. I'd like to hear your input on them after you've used them awhile.
    • Yes, out of 100lb logs so they can't carry it away!
    • Really ufatz, that's how tomorrow  will affect fishing?? It all depends on what your fishing for. If I'm just off the flats chasing walleyes it would be interesting to see if they work there way up on top mid day. Probably not. To much of a short window.. 
    • Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.
    • My bait is getting hit but the bear does not like the large, cinnamon gum drops i added to the bait! He will drag them out and move on to other tasty treats. I do have red licorice to add next time.
    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
